ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers have proposed $10 million in renovations for the Ballpark in Arlington, including an additional row behind home plate and upgraded concessions.

Rangers officials planned to update the Arlington City Council, which owns the venue, later Tuesday. A final vote on a financing arrangement could come Oct. 16.

The AL West-leading Rangers would pay all labor and construction costs for the offseason improvements.

The ballpark, which seats more than 49,000 on five levels, opened in April 1994. Recent upgrades include a new children's area, center field concession stands and improved video boards and TV monitors.
